Every year the Land Trust works to remove the invasive water chestnut (Trapa natans) from the Sudbury River often partnering with OARS and the Town of Concord’s Division of Natural Resources. The Land Trust also utilizes volunteers who can work on the water in a kayak to help hand pull these invasive plants from Fairhaven Bay. Learn more in this video!
